    Just a quick one, officers with platoons salute during the National Anthem on remembrance parades. Does the same apply to officers in uniform within the audience?

    Sadly I can't remember.

  2. Well, any soldier there without a senior taking salute on his behalf ought to salute, I would expect an officer to do the same.

    Wouldn't any platoon under arms also present arms ?.

    Shouldn't make a difference whether Officer or OR, if not part of squad then salute.

    Thanks for that, this will be the first year I have been at the service and not on the parade in 20 odd years hence the question.
     
  5. Depends on the parade. The City of Manchester parade guidelines state that no officers leading formed units are to salute except during the march past. Catches loads of 'em out. Like a semaphore convention or a load of bookies at the races. Individuals do normally slaute though. And, of course, if in civvies remove headdress.
     
  6. Although veterans wearing military headgear should salute and not remove headgear. Not that it is relevant to the original question.
